Live from Checkerboard Square 2017

It’s our second annual podcast from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway! Bob and Becky are camping for five nights across from the entrance to the Indy 500, in a compound they call Checkerboard Square. This episode begins with a segment of question/answers “Ask Us Anything”, followed by a few special guests, including brother-in-law Frank to talk camp cooking. Josh Staton, the representative who provided some of the campers in the compound stopped by to talk about the number of campers out here, and finally Bob’s old friend Jerry Stoner and his wife Christie join us to talk about the time Paul McCartney gave Bob a little slap down.

Walk of Life

Michigan morels, look out…we’re coming for you. It’s late spring in Indiana, so the mushroom hunting season is over. If I want to keep hunting (and eating) them, the only option is to drive north, and that’s what we have done. Our friends Kelley and Jennifer joined us...

Workin’ On A Big Chill

I’m naming my posts after songs from now on…if I can remember to do so! This is one of my favorite Vince Gill songs, and because we are in Nashville for his annual golf tournament (The Vinny), I thought it was appropriate to choose that name. Bob golfed on two...

The Vinny 2016

We had a gorgeous morning for hooking up the June Bug, loading all the gear, and hitting the road for the 6 hour drive to Montgomery Bell State Park in Tennessee. Our GPS took us through a lovely mountain road with tight hairpin turns, and although quite scenic, one...

Lake Whatchamacallit

Our Arkansas stay at Lake Ouachita was a mixed bag. The National Forest is beautiful and the lake is so clean! Our campsite was a little bit of a disappointment, but I think that’s only because we are officially SPOILED ROTTEN by the beach boondocking. We don’t want...

Putting Texas in our Rearview Mirror

Our very first stop after leaving the island was the car wash. We spent all the cash we had getting the Super Truck and June Bug scrubbed of all the sand and salt. We spent one quick night at Stephen F. Austin State Park before planning to return to the Austin area....

Generator + GasTapper

We purchased a generator this year so we could travel to unknown places and not have to worry about draining the batteries of our Airstream. We chose the Honda EU3000iS. 3000 watts of power, extremely quite, a convenient electric start and up to 20 hrs. of operation...

Boondocking on the Beach

We left the Hill Country and drove south through San Antonio. All along the way we saw more wildflowers. I just can’t get enough of those Texas Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush beauties. Stopped for lunch at a scenic picnic area along Route 37 The four days we spent...

Drag Me Out of Austin

For our last evening at McKinney Falls, we took a short walk down to the upper falls at sunset determined to get some magnificent photos. Well, with two dogs in tow, that’s easier said than done. Opie’s short little legs couldn’t keep up and he was tired out almost...

What’s Texas without BBQ?

We took a lovely drive out to Driftwood, Texas and ate lunch at a historic Texas joint called Salt Lick BBQ.  Before heading that way, we read everything there was to see about the restaurant, but nothing prepared us for the aroma as we pulled into the giant parking...

Keep Austin Weird

We love camping near Austin. McKinney Falls State Park is only about a 20 minute drive into the city and we’re taking full advantage. There is one downside to camping so close to such a fun city, though. We LOVE camping, and hanging out at our campsite, so it’s a...

Texas, From Top to Bottom

We spent the first three nights of our trip just trying to high-tail it to Texas, so we did quick stop-overs and got right back on the road.   Our first overnight was a KOA in Stanton Missouri. We were thankful for a pull-through site because it was raining and...

Deep in the Heart of Texas

We will be driving for a few days to get deep in the heart of Texas. We plan to park the June Bug in a couple of family member/friends’ driveways rather than spend time in campgrounds along the way. And we have miles to go before we sleep! I made a playlist of...

Summit Lake Camping

Summit Lake State Park is a real hidden gem. In fact, we had never heard of it, in spite of its proximity to Indianapolis. We drove to the park in a convoy of Jeep, boat, Steely Van, and June Bug in under 45 minutes! We chose our sites online without ever seeing the...
